This is my first day in grade five, my teacher is nice but she had polio. I feel happy because my teacher will understand how I feel with my cross eyes. I was afraid to not have any friends, so I went to the teacher to tell her what I did,she asked Ruth and Stella to go home. Then she told me that she saw what I did and that she knew I didn’t mean to cheat. she told me that she will forget what I did. I promised her that I will never ever do this again and that I will study my time tables. 29
I sit in the first desk, because I can’t see the words on the board. I need to be so near to decipher the words. In the class all the desks were dark and nailed to the floor, but mine was shiny golden brown. The teacher asked who get all correct and I raised my hand with them. I felt so bad and guilty. At the end of the day. Ruth and Stella came to me. Ruth told me that she saw me cheating. I was afraid and despised the panic in my voice. They told me that I will never have friends if I didn’t tell the teacher. 38
My desk wasn’t nailed, so I can move it to any place to see. I felt so lonely with this all. In the class there was a girl her name was Shirley. She was like an actress and everyone wanted to be her friend. I was astonished when Miss Marr asked Shirley to help me in the recess. When we were down Shirley whispered to me “You keep away from me, get lost.” When Ruth Dayton was going to sharpen her pencil she saw my paper. After we finished the teacher told us the model answers to check ours. While she was saying the answers I wrote them then checked correct. 47
I stood alone stunned into immobility. I walked alone to the tree and started to talk to it not to cry. I told myself a tree is better than a person. When we went up to the class, the teacher wanted to test us in timetables. Miss Marr started and I wasn’t fast to answer. I looked at my paper in dismay. 56
